Using textual analysis, this paper discusses the Catholic novels by Graham Greene and his use of a common literary device, “the love triangle”, employed in The End of the Affair (1951), a partially autobiographical novel. The first section provides a short biographical sketch of the author, his faith, his work, and his writings. The second section discusses his four Catholic novels – their themes and devices. The third section explores Greene’s twist on the love-triangle where the three corners become – man, woman, and God.
